What better way to help yourself than by helping others.
Joining the Biggest Loser challenge "The Bat Edition" is exciting. Not only will I improve my health but I have been given the opportunity to help change the lives of others within our community. There are four other competitors that will be working hard to win this competition. The winner will receive $500 towards their charity.
Last year, I was fortunate enough to donate time at the local area food bank and was able to see the overwhelming need first hand. There were several families waiting in their vehicles for the doors to open. They lined up to receive the one small box of food. I remember thinking to myself, "How is that enough food to feed a family for a month?" The food bank is open on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10:00 til 12:00. The building is in a old church that is in need of repairs. The food bank is in desperate need of financial donations and volunteers. Which is why I have chosen the food bank as my charity.
Hunger within our community is a serious matter. Unless you are faced with hunger yourself then it can be an awakening experience to see how going without proper nutrition is effecting our neighbors, especially the children. This could be within your own family without knowing it. How can you help? There are several ways in which you can make a difference. Get involved TODAY! Contact the food bank directly to make donations or become a volunteer at Marion County Community Ministries # 423.942.9556 or www.mccmfbgn.org.
Look for the Stop Hunger Jars around town to make a donation! Every penny counts! You can find a list of locations where to find a Stop Hunger Jar on the "What's New?" page.
Come out to a Stop Hunger Event. Watch for upcoming locations on the "What's New?" page where I will be out in the community sharing my weight loss update and taking donations.
Donate here TODAY! Any donation is greatly appreciated by both the food bank and myself. If you make a donation of $25 or more I will send you a copy of my book as a gift from me.
